At the cutting edge of Drupal, exciting advances are taking place. Novel architectures now characterize Drupal's expansion into untapped areas and coalescence with other, often entirely different, technologies. In the epic that is Drupal's long and storied history, we've opened a new and unpredictable chapter in the form of decoupled Drupal.
This session will detail the mind shift in the Drupal community around how Drupal software is released. Drupal 8 will be the first major release under this new philosophy, which frees customers to focus on innovating instead of waiting when it comes to features and functions. Angie Byron discusses how the Drupal community has changed the way we think about software releases.
“Journeys” are becoming the primary lens through which customer experience professionals and digital marketers think about planning and building the customer experience. A Journey Map is nothing new, but they have until recently been mostly drawn on whiteboards as ways of understanding users and personas. A new breed of software is emerging however that makes it much easier for brands to actually deliver on the promise of omni-channel customer journeys.
Delighting visitors with a relevant, personalized experience leads to better customer experiences. Enabling personalization tools for your sites and applications can only deliver the results if the content is timely, relevant, and engaging. Acquia's Ted Ottey will use his experience as product manager and user experience designer for Acquia Lift to show you how to get the most out of Lift content recommendations.
Whether you have a mature DevOps practice, or are adding continuous delivery best practices to your developer group, this session will help you integrate best practices into your Acquia Cloud applications through the use of Acquia Cloud CD, including Acquia Pipelines.
